Training

On the second day, Sylvia’s training began.

Aylin took her to the pavilion out back, where two yoga mats were set up.

“Let’s begin,” she said.

“The mind is not a prisoner of the body, nor is the body a slave of the mind.”

“Body and mind are a single whole. Without transcendence in one, there can be no transcendence in the other.”

“Limits are not meant to be broken. They are meant to be discovered. Every time we say a limit is broken, we have merely discovered that it was beyond where we thought it was.”

The dawn found Sylvia exhausted, watching as Aylin bent her body into increasingly more difficult positions.

As she scrubbed her aching body, she pondered Aylin’s words. What did any of this have to do with being a vampire? Count Straud had made her exercise her powers, but Aylin’s training so far had nothing to do with any of that.

Her last thought as she drifted off to sleep was that it would be worth it.
